About the Free Tax Prep Campaign

Volunteer Brochure

We are a partnership of nonprofit, government, and community organizations providing asset-building resources to help struggling families achieve financial stability.  Each tax season, we recruit volunteers to provide free tax assistance to low-income households. Many of the families we serve depend on their tax refunds to pay for basic needs, including rent, utilities, groceries, and transportation to and from work. 

By providing this free tax service, our volunteers make a difference in the lives of our low-income neighbors.

Last year, 457 volunteers prepared over 10,000 tax returns and delivered $16.8 million in refunds back to Southwestern PA residents. 

This tax season, we are hosting 27 free tax sites in Allegheny, Fayette, Greene, Washington, and Westmoreland Counties and hope to increase our impact to serve more families in need. We offer daytime, evening, and weekend hours at many locations. 

Allegheny County volunteers will use this webpage to register. Scroll down for more information.

Fayette, Greene, Washington, and Westmoreland County volunteers will click the county links below to visit the webpages with each county's registration information.
